Christians believe that John the Baptist had a specific role ordained by God to foretell the coming of the Messiah. The New Testament Gospels speak of this role eg
In Luke 1:17 the role of John is referred to as being "to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord."
Luke 1:76 "And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Highest; For you will go before the face of the Lord to prepare His ways,
and in Luke 1:77 as being " Luk 1:77 To give knowledge of salvation to His people By the remission of their sins, "
